Notes

Jeremias Altmann, also known as his street art name ‘El Jerrino’, is a world famous Austrian street artist and lecturer at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. Altmann's art can be seen on buildings and streets all over the world: Brussels, London, Delhi, Vienna, Potsdam, Buenos Aires and Dublin to name just a few. 

Continuing a tradition throughout art history, the artist has turned to his tools for the subject Nozzle Box 2D. Placing them at the centre of his work gives the viewer and artist a moment to celebrate their creative influence and role in the artist's life. However, instead of the conventional artist's brushes, rows of spray can nozzels are lined up to create a Wunderkammer or Cabinet of Curiosities of Altmann's trade and expertise. Furthermore, in capturing this moment in the traditional and 'noble' medium of an etching plate, the artist raises the status and perception of contemporary street art and documents in a majestic form.
